Citizen Trump With Chris Matthews MSNBC October 29, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
together we accomplished what absolutely nobody thought was possible. you know what that is. we are only getting started. >> he is so adept at changing the topic of not answering a question that we're at this point in the race and no one has any idea what his actual policies would be. >> you've given me the honor to lead the republican party to victory this fall.
>> the notion that the republican party wasn't right for a populist takeover, it just misunderstands the mood of the republican party. >> he has tapped into a part of the electorate that is, i think, deeply angry about the state of the economy. >> you're getting donald trump, full throttle, ready it destroy anyone who gets in his way. >> ladies and gentlemen, we will make america great again. thank you. ♪ ♪ good evening. i'm chris matthews. >> hi, richard lui at msnbc
people behind me. they don't have great seats -- they don't have great seats but tomorrow they'll be famous, okay? i wish the cameras would turn these cameras. people don't have any idea what's going on, do they? they know. but they know. they are the most dishonest, corrupt people. they are the most dishonest people. they are the most dishonest people. the only time they turn is when they have a protester and now we learned through wikileaks that hillary clinton was playing the protesters $1,500 each to be violent at our rallies. we just learned that last week.
wikileaks. every one of our 15 counties are losing insurance next year because of obama care. in phoenix there are eight obama care insurers. gone, gone. good luck. by the way, have a lot of fun negotiating. there's nobody to negotiate with. next year you'll have one. one group to negotiate with. i'd like to be that one group. that one group is going to do very well. but you're not going to do very well, but you're going to do very well if i get elected because we're getting rid of obama care and we're going to have an alternative that's cheaper, cheaper and better, better. it was announced this week that obama care premiums in phoenix will go up 100 -- congratulations -- 145%. 145. you know the worst part? it's no good. it's no good. it's not like it's great. it's no good. one insurer in the state will
have a $14,000 deductible. in other words, you've got to used 14,000 worth of care before they start giving you anything. sounds like a good idea? no. fol folks, we're going to have so many options, we're going to have so many great plans. there's going to be so much competition. we're going to get rid of the borders, get rid of the art official lines that are put there to make the insurance companies rich to get rid of the competition. you're going to have so much competition for your business. you're going to have great health care and it's going to be at a tiny fraction of what you're paying right now. obama care is a catastrophe for arizona and it's a catastrophe for the united states of america and we're going to get rid of it. even bill clinton admitted obama care is the craziest thing in
the world, where people wind up with premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. he's right but it's actually much worse than that. in minnesota where the premium increase will be close to 60%, the democratic governor, who is a real party stalwart, said the affordable care act is no longer affordable. that's in minnesota. a stay that we could actually win. we could win minnesota. and, by the way, we're winning arizona. you've seen the recent votes. and i want to thank governor brewer for being here. where is she? she's around here someplace. and what a job that young, beautiful woman, what a job you did.
and folks, folks, he's a good man. he was one of the first endorsers of donald trump. vote for sheriff joe. stand up, joe. they don't love tough people in this country anymore who know how to do their jobs. he's tough, he's fair. there's some bad undercurrents out there, folks. jonathan gruber, the architect of obama, remember, from m.i.t., my uncle john was a great
professor at m.i.t. for a long time. fortunately i liked him a lot better than jonathan gruber. but jonathan gruber admitted it was all a fraud. he said outrageously it was passed because of the stupidity of the american voter is unbelievable. we're going to show him on november 8th that the november -- we're going to show him on november 8th the american voter has had it. they've had it. hillary clinton wants to double down on obama care, making it even more expensive, in fact much more expensive than it is right now. [ crowd chanting ]
you know when people ask me about the crowds, they know show the crowds but they say it sounds like an ohio state football game actually. sure sounds big. you can actually tell a crowd by the sound. you can't imitate that sound. you know, when hillary clinton got up, i watched her today, oh. and she had very few people. and she walked on to the stage. i always do this and today i didn't because usually i'm always surprised by how many people. look, it goes all the way into the corners. look at that. but when she came on today, she looked at a small group of people. she goes, "wow, wow, wow." that's what i do. she's copied me.
drain that swamp. as you heard, it was just announced ned that the fbi is reopening their investigation into the criminal conduct and the illegal conduct of hillary clinton. this is the biggest political scandal since watergate, and it's everybody's deepest hope that justice at last will be beautifully delivered. hillary has nobody b herself to blame for her mounting legal difficulties. her criminal action was willful, deliberate, intentional and purposeful. hillary set up an illegal server
after, after receiving a congressional subpoena, made 13 phones disappear, some with with a hammer, lied to congress under oath many times, lied to the fbi many times and then recently two boxes of e-mail evidence went mysteriously missing. although they might have found a lot of those e-mails over the last couple of days, folks. looking like it. a lot of e-mails, a lot of trickery. the wikileaks revelations have exposed criminal corruption at the highest levels of our government. hillary put the office of
what has our country come to? 97% of the justice department contributions, 97% went to hillary clinton. i don't think they like me. there are those, and i happen to be one of them, who think hillary offered loretta lynch, the attorney general, a reappointment as attorney general if hillary were to become president. we don't want that to happen. a lot of people feel that way, right?
perhaps that is what bill clinton was arranging when he met with attorney general lynch on her airplane on a tarmac on a very, very warm day right here in arizona. the meeting lasted 39 minutes and it was just a coincidence. he was here to play golf. i hate to tell you it was 109 degrees that day. we all love arizona but when it gets to a certain temperature we just say let's stay inside today. it was 109. it was a very hot day, a very hot day. but he just happened to see her. you see that? oh, there's the attorney general's plane riding down the runway. i'm out playing golf. oh, there's the attorney general. hey, let me hop on. i've had a plane for a long time. never once has anybody entered my plane by saying, hey, can i come on to the plane from the tarmac while the plane's moving
public corruption, cronyism, that threatens the survival of our constitution itself. what makes us exceptional is that we are a nation of laws and that we are all equal under those laws. hillary's corruption shreds the principle on which our nation was founded. so sad. government corruption spreads outward like a cancer infecting the whole operation of our government. i have to tell you i respect the fact that director comey was able to come back after what he did. i respect that very much. and when the other side is complaining and complaining and complaining, there was no reason for it because all of the crimes
that were committed, something should have happened then. not now. just to break it down, there were many. but when you delete 33,000 e-mails after getting a subpoena, that's it. it's over. it's over. and i will tell you without knowing anything, the only reason -- the only reason that they did this action that you saw yesterday was very, very serious things must be happening and must have been found. very, very serious things.
confidence in our laws and confidence in our future. hillary clinton's corruption is corrosive to the soul of our nation and it must be stopped. it must be stopped. and one of the reasons i've been saying that the system is so corrupt and is so rigged is not only what happens at the voters booth, and you know things happen, folks. i watched obama the other day saying, oh, but this is the foundation of the system, how can he say it? and yet eight years ago he's on a clip talking about chicago and essentially how the voting is
rigged in chicago. you know, give me a break. take a look at it, eight years ago. it's all over the place. but one of the reasons i say it's rigged is hillary clinton, nothing to do with what i said recently, based on what took place, should never, ever, be allowed to run for the presidency of the united states. she shouldn't be allowed. she should have been disqualified a long time ago. and when you read the nasty wikileaks, the horrible things said about catholics and the horrible things said about evangelicals and the horrible things said about bernie sanders, what they said about bernie sanders. i mean, say what you want, what they said about bernie sanders is rather incredible. and then they have their super delegates and they had all of
the people stacked against him. he never had a chance, folks. and you know what? the worst thing he did was backing her because she wou gone down as a great figure in political history in this country, but once he did that, he sold his soul to the devil. but we'll take the bernie sanders voters because my trade policies are a lot tougher and better but we're going to have a two-way highway. governme hillary believes money and power, not truth and justice should rule the day. we have one ultimate check on
hillary's corruption and that is the power of voting, november 8th. so the only way we're going to beat the corruption is to show up and vote by the tens of millions, including millions of people voting for the first time in their entire lives. vote with all your heart and soul because we are going to make america great again. just remember that. we are.
restoring honesty to our government and rule of law to our government will be a very, very high priority to our presidency. haven't we had enough drama with the clintons? bill clinton was impeached for lying and obstructing justice, signed the worst trade deal in history, nafta, which emptied our country of its manufacturing jobs, and he doesn't even have the right anymore because of what he did to practice law. hillary has brought scandal or destroyed virtually everything she's touched. look at whitewater, look at the cattle futures, look at jobs in upstate new york, a disaster. look at syria, iraq, libya and now look at the mess she's in with these e-mails. and that will last for years. you think that's going away?
you know, when i first heard that term, i hated it. i said, oh, that's so hokie. that is so hokie. but i said, look, let's give it a shot. the place went crazy. then i said maybe we'll try it again. the place went crazy. and now i like it. a lot of great singers, frank sinatra, didn't like "my way" when he first sang it and then
i've done great deals with china. they're tenants in buildings of mine in new york. china is wonderful. i'm not angry at china. i'm angry at our people for allowing them to get away with it. i have the biggest bank in the world, the chinese bank, far bigger than any other bank, a tenant of mine. i sell them condos. i own a building in san francisco, a big building in new york because of china. china's wonderful. but they're getting away with murder. their leaders are smarter than our leaders. their people are smarter than our leaders. and mexico. doesn't worry, we're building a wall, don't worry.
we are living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. that's what's happened. this is the single greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. nafta, one-way street out. one-way street out. they get the jobs, they get the factories, the jocbs. what do we get? we get the unemployment. i'll have over $100 million invested in the campaign. my money, okay? if i don't pull this off, i'm going to feel very foolish.
give them back $150 billion. how about we give them $1.7 billion in cash. remember, we thought it was $400 million, right? remember, it was $400 million. you know what that is? that's this stage -- no, much bigger, triple it, going up to the ceiling. 400 million. and we were wrong. it wasn't 400 million. it was $1.7 billion in cash! airplane loads. and then obama said it had nothing to do with the hostages but it did. the hostages wouldn't be released until this cash came. $1.7 billion and they wouldn't release the hostages until they got the cash. and then they humiliated us with the ten sailors, right? and they would have kept them
forever -- not in i'm president -- they would have kept them forever except the cash, $150 billion was to be paid two days from the time of their capture. instead of saying, folks, you're a little bit in the wrong water, could you move over a little, get out of here, they captured them, brought them to their knees, humiliated those ten people. for the rest of their lives they're humiliated and humiliated the united states of america after they made one of the great deals ever. and then they ride around and do thing around our boats, they circle us. oh, they wouldn't be doing that. then they take their fighter jets and they ride very, very close. they do all sorts of things. no, no. you know, it's amazing. we gave them everything. and now instead of thanking us, they feel emboldened.
they feel emboldened. so you watch. we're going to be very, very careful. we have to be very careful. signing a nuclear deal is a good thing, not a bad thing. but kerry never walked. they won every single point. they got everything. this is worse than if we had no deal. the worse deals are the kind that are worse than if you had no deal. so with all of the things, with all of the stupidity that i see, how about where they capture, they're going to deport 800 people and these are tough ones, these are tough people and they made a little mistake. so they were going to deport them, you know what i'm talking about, they became, sorry, united states citizens, welcome aboard. so the 800 people -- it's like the money. instead of $400 million, it was 1.7. it's always worse, never better. so the 800 people instead of being deported, they pressed the wrong button.
if you elect me, i'm doing this for you, believe me. hillary is going to raise taxes up to 45%, massively expand regulation, shut down american energy, which is a disaster, and push through terrible trade deals that offshore our jobs to the benefit of her donors and special interests. her policies, in my opinion, will cause major, major recession and maybe even depression. a trump administration will stop transpacific partnership, a horror show, really bad deal, that's a really bad deal. we're going to renegotiate nafta and if we're not going to sand u -- stand up, i have a great relationship with china, but we are going to stand up with china on its massive currency
manipulation. because they're beating our companies because of currency manipulation. we're going to lower taxes on american business from 35% to 15%. we're going to cut taxes for middle class families by hundreds of billions of dollars. my infrastructure plan will provide help for projects like the proposed interstate 11. do you know what that is? which would connect phoenix with las vegas and other areas. everybody wants it. it's time we have some -- something new. you ever notice we don't build bridges anymore, we don't build tunnels anymore. you go to china, they have bridges all over the place. we don't build anymore and we don't make anything anymore relatively speaking. everything comes in from lots of different countries. we will also unleash the full power of american energy, including shale, oil, natural
go free inside america because their home countries wouldn't take them back. so we would catch these killers, these drug lords, gang members and we would bring them back to their country. and very intelligently their country would say we don't want them, we not taking them back. so she'd call the secretary of state. she'd say, oh, they don't want them? bring them back. we take them back. we have people begging us not to take them back. and as president, i will guarantee you we will not have one instance of taking them back. not one. these are people guilty of murder, rape, countless crimes because our government won't do its jobs. these include amazing americans and you saw that incredible
friend of mine, who just spoke incredibly by the way, the pain that so many people are going through, remembrance project, incredible people. americans like sergeant brandon mendoza of mesa, arizona, who was killed by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record a mile long, who should have been deported, everybody wanted him deported, people begged that he be deported but the government under obama refused to act. killed. i've spent time with his unbelievable mother and they're devastated. your life can never be the same. 28-year-old park ranger chris eggel was shot and killed by a drug cartel hit squad responsible for a number of murders all over mexico. chris died trying to protect our borders from drug and weapon trafficking into the oregon pipe
his illegal immigrant killer, despite a tremendously horrible criminal record was out on and right now was out on bond and roams free. when i become president, you can count on this, when i become president, this crime wave, this needless, senseless crime wave will end and it will end immediately. we are going to cancel all federal funding for sanctuary cities. we are going to improve tough
prison sentences for illegal immigrants who return after a previous deportation. in other words, we get them out, they come right back. we get them out -- look at kate steinly, san francisco. he came back five times. so we get them out, they come back. we say, listen, do it again, you're going five years. do it again, after that you're going ten years. you know what's going to happen? they're not coming back anymore, folks. not complicated. we will end illegal immigration, deport every last criminal alien and save american lives and we'll do it quickly. we will also repeal the obama/clinton defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted military. >> we have tremendous military
support, unbelievable military support and having general plin here and having so many of the generals on our side -- in fact, where is general flynn? he's around here someplace. incredible guy. we have the endorsement of over 200 admirals and generals and 22 medal of honor recipients. our air force is the smallest and oldest it has ever been, and my plan builds a modern advance fighter aircraft we need, fighters like those that will be stationed at luke air force base. luke.
and we're going to take the leaders of isil -- did i say isil. isis. we're going to take the leaders of isis and we're going to capture them. but you can't capture them because they know you're going in, right? so how do you capture them? about two minutes they hear you're going into mosul, they're gone. whatever happened to the element of surprise, folks? and now as you know, mosul's tough, those leaders are gone, they're someplace else, you go in, you do the job, you have the press conference a week later, not four months before. i wonder what the great general douglas mcarthur, i wonder what the great generals of our country in the past, our past generals would think when they see what's going on, when they
see isis using human shields, killing people. it's like medieval times. but you don't talk, you get it done. we don't want to talk. you get it done. we're going in. here's obama. we're going in in four months to mosul. oh. i don't want to hear it. please -- >> we're going in in three months. two months. we're preparing. one month. that's right. he said red line. we're drawing a red line. what a group. we have a president who is essentially incompetent. i'm telling you. incompetent. and why is he always campaigning with hillary clinton? why isn't he working on jobs? why isn't he working for the vets on straightening out that because the veterans administration is a shame and a
parts from those museums anymore. we also need a new policy that puts america first. we don't put america first, folks. it's almost like we have leaders that say, you know, we negoating with countries, we want to make sure they come out well. us, don't worry about us. but they're doing it for a reason. they're doing it because people take care of them very well. hillary's policies unleashed isis, empowered iran and spread death and destruction across the middle east. hillary and our failed washington establishment have spent $6 trillion on wars in the middle east and now it's in worse shape than it was before we started. i mean, the middle east is in far worse shape now. our failed establishment has betrayed the american worker and the american family. they've dragged us into foreign wars that have made us less safe and they've left our borders
wide open at home and they've shipped our jobs and our wealth away to other countries, which we're stopping immediately. when we lose our companies, out of arizona and so many other states, essentially all states, they have moved to mexico. take the example of carrier air conditioning, indianapolis, indiana, a great place. and by the way, isn't mike pence a great guy? what a job he has done. see that's good judgment. bernie sanders said hillary has bad judgment and podesta, i don't know this guy podesta, whoever the hell he is, i would fire him so fast. he says nothing but bad things about crooked hillary.
taxed nation in the world. we're going to eliminate every unnecessary job killing regulation. we'll cancel every illegal obama executive order. we're going to stop the massive inflow of refugees and keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our country. we're going to rebuild our depleted military and take care of our great, great veterans, we're going to take care for once and for all, we're going to take care of our veterans, we will reduce crime and support the incredible men and women of law enforcement. and i don't know, you know, this dishonest media, the world's most dishonest people. terrible people.
told by politicians, that they have to defer their dreams to another day, but what they really mean is another decade. they don't mean another day, they mean decades and decades away, hillary has been there for 30 years, and she has punished nothing, just made things worse. she's the candidate yesterday. we are a movement of the future. this is a movement, folks. this is a movement. this is a movement like our country has never seen before. and we are driving these characters crazy, they don't know, they are not happy. our movement represents all americans. thank you. from all back grounds and all walks of life. we're asking for the votes of republicans, democrats,
independents and first time voters and there's going to be a lot of them, believe me. we're fighter for every citizen who believes that government should serve the people, not the donors and not the special interests. we are fighting to unlock the tremendous potential of every american community and every american family who yearn for a better future, a much better future. with your vote, we are just ten days away from the change you've been waiting for your entire life. i will never let you down, i promise you that. i will never, ever let you down.
minutes, just finishing up, leading off for the most part in the first 10 or 15 minutes, talking about director comey from the fbi and his letter to leaders there in congress, criticizing the clinton campaign, hillary clinton's establishment of a private e-mail server, he started with that very quickly and then moved on to various other topics, for instance, when he was talking about iran and $100 million being given to the country, as we go to politifact, that being wrong. and then he goes to loretta lynch, there was a guarantee of a reappointment, no confirmation of that. and pretolitifact, saying no
evidence of that, and that a staffer did delete it according to politifact. on that very topic, hillary clinton responding to donald trump and his criticisms of this latest report coming from director comey from the fbi. and this is what she said a little bit earlier in one of her stops in florida. >> some of you may have heard about a letter that the fbi director sent out yesterday. well, if you're like me, you probably have a few questions about it. it is pretty strange, it's pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. in fact, in fact, it's not just
strange, it's unprecedented, and it is deeply troubling. because vote evers deserve to g full and complete facts. so we have called on director comey to explain everything right away, put it all out on the table. >> that was daytona beach earlier today. hillary clinton speaking and starting her remarks there directly with that point, asking the fbi, asking director comey, james comey, more information about what he was alluding to in that letter. i want to also take you to florida, to miami, where there is a jennifer lopez get out the vote event. it's in its second hour, secretary clinton also projected to be there. the clinton campaign, holding these get out the vote campaign,
so those who now can vote early would have easy access, should they decide to do so. we'll continue to follow both of the candidates on the campaign trail. for now stay with us right here on msnbc for further reports. nbc news has projected al gore the winner in florida. we knew it was going to big. >> florida has been prematurely called. >> we realized this story is getting bigger. >> nbc news is taking vice president gore out of the win column. >> there were so many headlines that could have come out of november 7. >> hillary clinton, that she put her hat in the ring to run for senate from
